A month or so after my grandfather died an operator told my grandmother that she had a collect call from my grandfather and asked if she would 'accept the charges'.She freaked out,told the operator he was dead and hung up...…..I've always wondered what would have happened had she said yes.

She called back twice, and got the "this number has been disconnected" recording. Once, she actually answered the call yet all she heard was static on the other end. This went on till my mother, afraid, got rid of that mobile phone and number. Then an old family friend started getting the calls. I Googled the phenomenon and even asked a local psychic with a paranormal team about it. She told me that my aunt only wanted my mom to know that she's okay where she is now. Has anyone else ever experienced this?
I have goosebumps after reading this post. That freaks me out!

About an hour after my DH passed, and his body was out of the house, the phone rang and no one was there. I said to my friends who were with me, He is calling to let me know he got there OK.


The next day, on hold with a government office on the phone, the hold music was, "whenever you want me, I'll be there, whenever you need me, I'll be there, I'll be around." Made me smile.

About a month after my mom died I got a text message from my DIL's phone number with no actual message. just a picture of my mom with her youngest great-grandchild; my granddaughter Sophia.

It was almost 3 am but I thought just maybe ... my DIL had had to get up to nurse the baby & maybe just decided to send me the picture?

I forgot about it for a couple of days & then realized I needed to text my DIL & say thanks for the pic. It really is a great pic taken two days before my mom died where both baby & great-grandma have their mouths open, looking at each other with a surprised 'peek-a-boo' look on their faces. Identical in angle of their heads & everything. Really cute.

This is how the text convo worked out:

Me: 'BTW; thank you for the pic!'

DIL: 'What pic?'

Me: 'The one of Grandma & Sophia.'

DIL: 'When?'

Me: 'Didn't you text me a pic really late a few nights ago?'

DIL: 'No, I don't think so. Which one?'

So I forwarded the picture back to her & she says:

DIL: 'I didn't send that! I took that picture with my old phone that Dawson (my grandson) broke!'

Then after a few minutes:

DIL: 'I think I know who sent you that pic ...'

Me: 'Yeah, me too.'

The full episode used to be available on youtube but CBS had it pulled. You now have to have a subscription to CBS All Access to be able to see it.
Well, tell us what it was about!

It's on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video if you have any of those. The whole series is there.
